IRAN ON EDGE: Pro-Democracy Protesters Take the Streets of Iran, Chant ‘Death to the Dictator’  

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.13.20

Countless protesters took to the streets of Tehran this weekend after Iran admitted they accidentally shot-down a Ukrainian passenger jet; killing all 176 passengers and crew on board.

“Videos emerged online Monday that purportedly show Iranian police and security forces firing live ammunition to disperse demonstrators protesting against the Islamic Republic after the country mistakenly downed a Ukrainian airline plane shortly after takeoff from Tehran,” reports Fox News.

“There was no immediate report in Iranian state-run media on the incident near Azadi, or Freedom, Square in Tehran, but, if true, could be seen as an act of defiance against President Trump who warned the regime against the use of deadly force,” adds Fox.

President Trump tweeted his support for the Iranian demonstrators on social media, warning leaders in Tehran “Don’t kill your protesters.”
